. and with that i actually submit to you just a device that we are actually using to work with san francisco unified around the programs that we've done during the summer. and whether we are tracking where folks know in the school district ho numbers, whether we can actually look at the students that are in after school programs and what that impact is on their school day. and doing more trainings around what the state standards are, the schools know them. the school district knows them, but what about the service providers? what is it that the kids should be do at the end of the day, what that should look like. so, again, thank you for this and i look forward to seeing what comes from it. >> thank you very much. and i believe now we'll be hearing from our deputy superintendent. guadalupe guerrero. >> good afternoon, commissioner, and supervisors. guadalupe guerrero. i think i'm in the eighth week for deputy superintendent for instruction, innovation and social justice. glad to speak on the topic today. let me switch over to our powerpoint. there we go, thank you. today's presentation there's a few

the san francisco unified school district believe are some of the causes of this high drop-out rate? you mentioned outmigration. what are some of the other causes? what are the symptoms, why are we so sick? >> well, clearly the american high school drop-outrate -- we don't have a monopoly on that. * it's the case in most urban centers and even rural districts. so, the factors, they are complex. certainly we have our students during the school day, but it's hard to not make some correlations to sort of the other social economic factors, community factors, you know, people were saying sort of the slogan it takes a village. it takes a healthy village. some of the things we notice makes a difference is when we help students and families sort of meet some of those challenges. so, things that have proven successful in getting kids to better rates of proficiency, making mental health services available, making sure there is academic and enrichment opportunities in the summer and after school, making sure they are involved with a mentor, making sure that they're involved in advisories with a pri
promising partnerships that are occurring. san francisco unified school district's vision for student success, we do expect that every student who enrolls in our schools will graduate from high school, will be ready for college and career and be equipped with the skills to be successful in the 21st century. san francisco unified adopted a bold strategic plan with three goals focused on access and equity, student achievement, and account ability. -- and accountability. and there are six key milestones our superintendent has laid out toward measuring our progress and student goals. there are a few in here i want to highlight. they're kind of chronological starting with the first milestone, and that's the percentage of students who are ready for kindergarten. and that's important to today's topic because 30% of our students, based on our assessment, are actually showing up ready for kindergarten. so, that is a point of input. we then have a fourth grade milestone where you see that number after a few years has gone up a bit to 70 and 72% for meaning in which language arts and math standa
and preparing students for successful graduation in 2014 and beyond. san francisco unified district in collaboration with the city and county of san francisco together identify the financial resources for crisis intervention making a broken promise and truly supporting all students in being successful, not just some. focusing on offering credit recovery opportunities like seventh period available at each high school for struggling students with a teacher present, not just online cyber high. prioritizing the students most at risk of not graduating for the classes of 2014 and 2015. smaller classes sizes for the key a through g classes and academic support and tutoring for students not on track for graduation. where there are many things the select committee can recommend and move on to both body, we are encouraging each one of you to take into account, like i said, the urgency and figuring out how we are going to graduate 2014 and 2015. thank you for your time. >> thank you very much. colleagues, any questions? (applause) >> on the presentation? supervisor olague. >> i guess i was won

i actually represented the san francisco unified school district as a lawyer on the consent decree case. one thing to remember is that san francisco unified was actually under court order for more than two decades because of discrimination. and a federal court order, you know, overseeing the operations of the school district could not fully address all of the issues that we're talking about . and during that time each year the school district was getting about $40 million from the state to address those issues. so, just to provide some context. so, my suggestion would be to the folks, the supervisors who requested this hearing and to many of the people that i hear, i do think it would be helpful so that we don't have a situation where we talk about this and nothing happens, to set up a small working group to come up with some suggestions in terms of moving forward whether it's the creation of a task force, whether it is, you know, something larger, because the reality is that we're talking about public education. but there are so many different issues that are a part of this that t
is these are students that are both not finishing school uc or ucs eligible and not graduating san francisco unified school district with a diploma if this pattern persists. so, just to call it out, for our 2014 class, african-american students, those are 246 kids today not on track. these are students that are not performing with a d or better in their required courses and only 76 that are on track if you look at the minimal requirements. if you see the 2015 class, you see that number there. now, of course, as they become juniors and seniors, you'll notice that the sequence gets even a little more stringent. so, the big question is what are some of the strategic actions and interventionses for closing this achievement gap, which is persisted for generations? >> commissioner. >> excuse me, deputy lieutenant. i have a question or clarification on the last slide. does that include students that are just in our regular schools or does that include our county schools? >> good afternoon, bill sanders, director division of curriculum instruction. it includes all students in that grade. >> okay, thank you.
having been an employee of the san francisco unified school district, my hope and my intent as we tackle some very difficult issues which impact all of us is that we do so in the spirit of how do we work together as a city and as a school district to address these issues. i know that in the past some folks on the school district end had felt the prior discussion that has taken place in this committee has been about pointing fingers, and i really think that while it's important for all of us to be accountable, that the goal here is to figure out solutions for these very complicated issues. so, it is in that spirit that i hope we have this discussion. so, with that, i turn it over to my colleague, supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. good afternoon, everyone. it's nice to see you. i thank you for hearing this item today. both supervisor olague and i express concern and desire of to better coordinate the work being done by the school district and other school -- excuse me, and other city departments, to support and -- to support and increase african-american students achievement and pr
